It will be interesting to see how quickly he can garner Brad's trust. Carsen should have little trouble - he will pick up at 94 feet and Brad has always given bombers an unlimited greenlight. Grant is an every coach dream type of player and plays at a huge position of need (a guy with PF heft and high-level, team-oriented offensive skill).
Romeo in many ways fits the profile of Tatum and Jaylen, who had little problem getting Brad to believe in them, but they also had way less competition. Jaylen only had Gerald and James Young as competition for Crowder's back-up minutes and then the Irving trade and Hayward injury opened up a ton of minutes.
I think Romeo's best chance is us going crazy small ball. If we play Hayward as a full-time 4, he'll only have to beat Semi for a 15-17 mpg role spot in the rotation.
They taped a paddle to his hand my gosh I've got visions of Markelle Fultz yips in my head. Bad sign.
Can't help but think we were taking Herro.
This. I think it’s obvious they wanted Herro if you put the puzzle pieces together. Can’t blame them for going with a high upside guy in his stead though
Romeo definitely makes me nervous. But in general fans haven't been so excited about a rookie class since they were certain Danny had struck gold--over and over--when he drafted Hunter, Mickey, and Thornton in 2015. Oh, that Rozier kid too--though lots of people thought that was Danny's one miss where he had really reached.
